Tom Brady Is Set To Get His Own Reality Series

The series comes on top of the news Brady will also have his own The Last Dance moment with a 9-part documentary series.

At a time where Netflix’s top-trending shows tend to dominate all social interactions, sports stars around the world are now clambering for their moment in the spotlight. As if playing in front of hundreds of thousands of adoring fans wasn’t enough to stroke the ego, it seems these stars want the lights and camera to stay on them even away from the field. After the success of The Last Dance, the documentary series that gave fans a rare insight into the 1997 NBA season where Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls began their quest to win a sixth NBA title in eight years, it seems the sports world is now looking for its next story and who better to take up the mantle than the once-in-a-lifetime quarterback that is Tom Brady. 

Though Brady has often shared insights into his gruelling fitness routine, the project is an exciting one that promises to go deeper and now, it’s even been revealed that Brady is set to star in a reality series. During its upfront presentation, Fox teased a collaboration with the 7-time Super Bowl champion, with Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, saying: “We also have an unscripted project with Tom Brady. Yes…that Tom Brady.”

According to Deadline, the project will be produced by Brady’s own “multi-platform content company,” 199 Productions, which was launched in 2020 with the hope to develop original premium content ranging from feature films, documentaries and television shows, be it unscripted or otherwise. 

It seems that on top of maintaining an incredibly competitive career that has seen Brady continue to dominate the sport, Brady also has a number of projects in the pipeline. He’s teamed up with Marvel director Joe & Anthony Russo for a project titled Unseen Football, which is touted as a “love letter to his sport.” This “fast-paced, incandescent big-screen 3D adventure documentary” is “designed to take viewers into the invisible realms of football, guided by the most successful quarterback in NFL history.”

As for his own Last Dance moment, Brady is said to be part of an ESPN 9-part documentary series that will chart his rise in the sport, called Man In The Arena which is scheduled for a late 2021 release. The series will document his career from being the famed 199th NFL draft pick to the biggest NFL star the world has ever seen. Naturally, it will also provide an insight into his private life and family time with wife, Gisele Bundchen. 

“Nine Super Bowl appearances over the course of 20 years is an achievement on an unmatched level,” says Connor Schell, Executive Producer of ESPN Films. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Tom Brady as he reflects on each of those nine, season-long journeys and the pivotal moments that defined them.”

While a release date is yet to be confirmed, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information unfolds.
